West Coast streetwear retail staple Bait has teamed up with brands including Diadora, Saucony and Asics for its sought-after collabs. And now, the store is adding Lacoste to the list.
The Bait x Lacoste Inca “Dark Crocodiles” is scheduled to be released on Saturday and retail for $150. The shoes will be available via online raffle, which is going on now on baitme.com.
Bait’s next collab reimagines Lacoste’s Inca model, giving it a more modern look and feel. The retailer modified the shoe’s quarter panel with ventilation perforations, and also changed up its bootie construction with an added collar to improve its comfort.
The shoe is executed with premium black crocodile embossed nubuck on the quarter panel and heel strap, which Bait said is a nod to the Lacoste brand, as well as premium black smooth nubuck is on the toe panels next to a neoprene bootie underlay. Bait also added 3-M Bait-branded print on the extended tongue webbing, and leather insoles with sewn-in co-branded Lacoste and Bait woven labels. The look is completed with a white outsole.
